Relevant Magazine sat down with Rob Bell from Mars Hill church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to talk about his new book Jesus Wants to Save Christians, co-authored with Don Golden. Amanda is reading the book right now, and I hope to read it soon. This interview drew some more interest in me, and I thought it may for others who read my blog (which isn’t many). You can read the interview here. But here’s a small excerpt-

 

As the title of the book suggests, Jesus Wants To Save Christians. In your opinion, what are the biggest things we need saving from? 

Boredom. Which is really despair in its non-caffeinated form. And boxes. Where we live in fear and where we put those who unsettle us.



Peter Enns on NPR

I’m not sure how many of us have heard about the controversy surrounding Peter Enns’ book Inspiration and Incarnation and his resignation from Westminster Theological Seminary. However, about a month ago, Peter Enns sat down to talk about his book with NPR’s Marty Moss-Coane. I particularly enjoyed his summary of the book, and one agnostic caller who said that the ideas presented in Enns’ book could have slowed down the caller’s personal movement to agnosticism. Now, this doesn’t mean that this makes Enns’ book correct or his ideas better, but it drives an interesting point. I hope you have a chance to listen.
